Maidstone Activity Dogs

Maidstone Activity Dogs was set up in 2014 and now runs as a very successful Agility Club with dogs competing regularly with excellent results. The club has Kennel Club Listed Status for both Agility and The Good Citizen Dog Scheme and runs a Kennel Club Agility Show through the summer and an independent series of 4 shows through the winter.

We have recently added Puppy Training, Hoopers (through the summer months) and Rally once a month.

If you choose to train with us you become part of Team MAD. We currently have approx 100 members. We pride ourselves in supporting each other at shows, cheering each other on at presentations and of course being there when things don't go to plan. Everyone is really friendly and we welcome those who want to be part of our ever growing MAD Family!

Our Trainers

Katie

Owner/Head Trainer

Agility classes are run by Katie who has over 16 years experience of working with Dogs including Military and Police Dogs and dogs trained for private security companies. 

 

Katie has a certificate in education and training and also been a swimming teacher for 7 years so has plenty of experience in teaching. 

 

She currently has 3 dogs of her own, 3 Malinios, Heidi, Bridget and Ralph .


Katie currently doesn't have a competing dog to to them all retiring or passing away (and Bridget doesn't like it!) Ralph will hopefully compete once he is old enough - his training is going well so far.

Katie and her Malinois Chaos competed on the Great Britain Team for the Belgian Shepherd World Championships in Germany in 2017.

 

Katie is also a Kennel Club Championship judge for Agility,  Judges Trainer and Agility 1st Qualified Instructor.
